It’s a busy week for the Geoducks as the green and white look to put on a good show for an alumni on campus for Return to Evergreen!
The public will have their first chance to see the 2013-14 men’s and women’s basketball teams as they take to the hardwood against former players in the annual alumni games. The women will tip at 3:30 p.m., followed by the men at 5:30 p.m. Between games will be the official dedication of Costantino Recreation Center, named after recently retired Vice President of Student Affairs Art Costantino.
Evergreen fans in the Portland area can swing by McIver State Park in Estacada, Ore. on Saturday morning to watch the Geoducks race in the Lewis & Clark Invitational.
